An NHS contract to transfer the running of physiotherapy services in York has been stopped by the city’s commissioners.
Kent-based Healthshare Clinical Services had been due to take over the running of the musculoskeletal (MSK) clinical assessment triage and treatment services in York on November 1.
However, the NHS commissioners for York have said they are “unable to proceed” with the awarding of the five year contract and will begin the procurement process again.
Commissioners have not explained exactly why this decision was made, only saying they are legally entitled to withdraw the contract if the bidder has “failed to provide technically acceptable solutions with a fixed price on agreed contractual terms which offer value for money and are affordable”.
